FRANCO & ASHLEY MARTINEZ
We are Franco (Venezuela) and Ashley (USA) Martinez who found love on the magical island of Oahu, HI.
Franco’s passion is surfing and Ashley's loves vegan cooking and baking.
We love challenging ourselves to live more simply,
less about having things and more about having time together.
"Living on the island we are intertwined in nature, but also see the impact the human race has had on the earth"
Franco scoops more plastic bags out of the ocean everyday and Ashley sees how the simple act of going to the grocery store can create so much plastic waste. Plastic will never go away unless we consume less of it, and the plastic that already exists is having a huge impact on our eco-systems.
We created ʻĀINA Life to help people have access to simple alternatives to
promote a plastic-free lifestyle and healthier life for our future generations
ʻĀINA “eye-nah” meaning land in Hawaiian was chosen because it is
the constant reminder that without the land we would not have life.
We believe in the good of people, and that together we can help to reverse the damage
already done and create habits that will build a more sustainable future.
